Released from prison after 18 years, notorious gunslinger 'Killer' Cain is a peaceful reformed man but the Old West has died and he cannot adapt to the modern West where some unpaid moral debts and old troubles resurface.
Well done western, one of the early 'Good guy is not so good' characters. The scene where Walkers tries to stay awake by braiding a circle if thorns around his neck (so he doesn't nod off) shows what a hard case he is. Alex Karras shows some football players CAN act, and Stephanie Powers makes for a pretty distraction. Walkers sheer size, and depth of voice make him a threat to the bad guys, and he handles himself very well, not like the muscle-bound movements you see in a lot of todays large actors. The films stars get dusty, dirty, hungry, thirsty, backaches, tired and trail sore. They don't stay clean shaven, with shiny guns sweat-less shirts. Gritty, hard men in a unforgiving and uncompromising. Real hard cases.
